I'm very excited to finally open this thread since it symbols to me the fact that my serious loop upgrade is finally in motion. Everything is finally ordered and due to arrive within 3 weeks


So what are we planning?
Quite simple, gonna make a massive build (atleast for me it is) while making it as tidy and clean as possible.

Parts:

CPU Block: Ek Supreme HF + Black Acetal Top
GPU Blocks: 2x Ek-FC GTX 470 + Black Backplates
EK-FC Bridge DUAL Serial
2x EK-FC Link GeForce ( for EK SLI Bridges )
Chipset Block: Ek-FB EVGA x58 Classified Full Board
Radiators: 2x XSPC RX360
Reservoir: FrozenQ Liquid Fusion 250ml Red with Side Ports
Pump: Swiftech MCP-655 with Bitspower D5 v2 Top
Fittings: 14x Bitspower Premium G1/4" Matte Black High Flow 1/2" Compression
8x Bitspower G 1/4" Black Sparkle 45 Degree IG 1/4" Adapter - Black Matte Finish
1x Bitspower Rotary Fitting "T" - 180 Degree Water Cooling Accessory - Black Matte Finish
1x Bitspower Sealing Plug - 1/2" - Matte Black Finish
Tubing: 14x PrimoFlex Pro LRT Black Tubing -1/2in. ID X 3/4in. OD
Fans: 6x Yate Loon 120mm Medium Speed Silent Case Fan - D12SM-12 (For push-pull on one rad)
3x Yate Loon CLEAR 120mm Medium Speed Silent Case Fan with Red LED - D12SM-124R (For pull only on the other rad)
2x Yate Loon 140x140x25mm Clear Medium Speed Fan with Quad Red LED D14SM-124R (Case fans)
Fan Controller: Lamptron Fan Controller Touch - 6 Channels - Black
Other:
Koolance Radiator Mounting Bracket with Quick-Release
3x MNPCTech "Flame" 120mm Acrylic Fan Grill - Black
6x NZXT CB-3F Single Sleeved 3-Pin Fan Extension 12"
6x 3-Pin Y-Adapter Cable 6" - Black Sleeved
4x NZXT Single Sleeve 6pin Video Extension - Black
NZXT Single Sleeve 24pin Extension - Black
NZXT Single Sleeve 8pin CPU Extension - Black
MNPCTech Machine Billet Anodized Aluminum Case Handles - Silver (Gonna spray them black)
Lian Li Solid Aluminum Black Anodized Casters

Hardware:

CPU: Intel Core i7 920 D0 (Might change to i7 950, my current 920 loves too much voltage :/ )
Motherboard: EVGA Classified SLI x58 3-Way
RAM: 6GB G.Skill Ripjaws 2000Mhz
GPU: 2x EVGA GTX470
Storage: Crucial 128GB C300 RealSSD + 2x Samsung Spinpoint F3 1GB
ASUS U3S6 PCI-E (SATA III controller for the SSD's)

Plan:



Even with my crappy paint skills it's quite easy to get the general concept, the right sidepanel is going to be cut for a custom window and a part of the material will be made into a cover for the bottom compartment with an engraving of "Sanitarium" in red.
Even though I'm not sleeving I made sure that every cable visible in the case is sleeved, I'm probably gonna buy a new sleeved PSU soon for a tri-sli setup

Today I received a notice in mail that my package from Performance-PCS.com has arrived and is waiting in customs, then I saw on the notice that PPC stated my items to be worth 1342$ even though I requested from them specifically to write down only 400$...
Before I ordered they told me to write on the comments on the order the amount I would like to be declared and ofcourse I did so but guess what? PPC completely screwed me over.
Now I have to pay an outrageous amount of money to customs, epic fail for ppc.

Thanks guys

Still got alot to improve, I really under estimated the whole cost in the beginning so I couldn't really afford to order more parts in the last few months (rent is abit more important
) but hopefully I'll be able to complete the build next month, here is a few stuff to be done:

1. I replaced my Antec TP Quattro 1000w with a Corsair AX1200, needs to be fully sleeved with a red and black theme.
2. Replace the Supreme HF Full Copper with a Supreme HF Nickel/Acetal.
3. Purchase Ek RAM block
4. Paint the Supreme HF, RAM block and Ek bridge in red (only the Ek logo writing will be painted)
5. Get myself another D5 with dual Ek top
6. Also get an Aquacomputer flow meter

After that I'll be done
